“I will tell you something about stories . . . They aren’t just entertainment. Don’t be fooled. They are all we have, you see, all we have to fight off illness and death.” ― Leslie Marmon SilkoCeremony

What are the stories that sustain us and allow us to grow and reach our goals? What are the stories that hold us back, and how do we change those stories? As a story coach, I work with individuals, institutions and corporations at all stages of their process to help them discover and develop their authentic story whether for the page or an event. My focus and strengths are in the area of personal storytelling.

Storytelling for personal development

Learn to tell your story

Whether you are working on a memoir, a story or event/performance, it is critical to find your true voice and uncover what’s at the heart of your story and how to best communicate that story to its intended audience. Often, the one-on-one coaching process will turn into a longer-term relationship where we decide on set dates for completion of parts of the project and drafts for discussion and feedback. Other times, you might want a one-time coaching session to help you start or complete a project. I can also provide feedback on completed manuscripts. Depending on your particular needs and objectives, we will put together a plan to help you reach your goals.

Storytelling for professional development

Your business, public speaking, corporate communication

Stories are a powerful medium and tool for identity creation and communication, and learning to use stories to reach your intended audience can be transformative for your organization or business. I can help you take a look at the stories your organization tells itself and the ones that people tell each other about it to shift the narrative in a more productive, comprehensive and effective direction.
